21  of My Favorite Quotes about Fear

21 of My Favorite Quotes about Fear

Fear is one of the biggest motivators when it comes to our lives. Its a shame because out of fear come decisions that do not reflect our real wants, needs and beliefs. In exploring fear I found these quotes that to me say it all. Take a look and see if any of them move you to rethink how you want to make decisions in your life. Knock, knock. Who´s there? Boo. Boo who? Don´t cry it is only a joke. 🙂   Read if you dare….. (As I am writing this my cat sleeps in the window and is making scary sucking noises. )   1. Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our Light, not our Darkness, that most frightens us.   Marianne Williamson   2.

Happiness in 9 Simple Steps

Happiness in 9 Simple Steps

How would you like to be happier with your life and happier overall in five simple steps? Did you know that happiness is 50 % genetics and depending on who´s formula you follow the rest is a combination of your circumstances, your attitude and what you choose to fill your day with. When you are happy it spreads to everyone around you. It makes everyone feel great and makes like seem easier. We are pack animals and tend to follow the cues around us so when we are happy we influence the mood of those around us.   How we feel is dependent upon what we think. Our thoughts come before our feelings. In Cognitive Behavioral Therapy they teach that situations arise, we have thoughts and those thoughts influence how we feel. That is extremely powerful. Happiness is not about what you have but what you do with what you have and how you feel about it.   Research has shown that people that win the lottery for instance are only happier...

Do You Have What it Takes to Succeed?

Do You Have What it Takes to Succeed?

We all want to have what it takes to succeed. But actually having what it takes to succeed is often much more involved than we know. When we do not or are not willing to look at ourselves objectively we often overestimate how far we are willing to go to reach our dreams. By not looking at our own behavior long and hard with honest eyes it becomes  very difficult to be able to see ourselves and our behavior objectively. How many times have you encountered someone that feels like they are contributing much more than they actually are or someone that says they will tow the line but when the chips are down they are the first to leave you high and dry?

Maybe we have even put it into action, and who knows, maybe even seen results from believing in ourselves. Yet their are a few more things we need to think about if we want to be successful in out endeavors and achieve our goals. For  instance you need to plan. We cant plan everything and we certainly have to be flexible enough to adapt to unexpected events but that doesn’t mean we should  just sit back and wait either. We should have goals. Big ones, small ones, multiple goals at a time and even goals that are so big they seem like mere dreams. We all know that we can have goals but what makes the goals we have successful?

Increase your happiness

Happiness is 50% genetics and depending on who´s formula you follow then the rest is a combination of circumstances, your attitude and what you choose to fill your day with. When you are happy it spreads to everyone around you. It makes everyone feel great and makes life seem just a little easier. Happiness is not about what you have but what you do with what you have and how you feel about it. Research has shown that people that win the lottery for instance are only happier for a short amount of time. They very quickly go back to the same state of mind that they were in before the windfall. This is because their mindset stays the same. Their genetics, attitude and mindset essentially stay the same even if their circumstances have changed. The Happiness Mindset Having a positive mindset is essential to feeling happy. When you wake up feeling positive that something great is going to happen it usually does. Just like when you wake up grumpy and...
